    I love your art piece and thank you so much for showing us how you did it. Now I need to start saving my super small scraps and organize by color. We can certainly get every penny's worth out of our stash. Could this technique be used for very fancy mug rugs?

    I guess you could do something similar for mug rugs, perhaps without the beads. I'd be careful of the organza though - the one I used is polyester and quite delicate.

    Wow, this is stunning. I love the allium and you have captured it so realistically. Gorgeous workmanship. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi K3n, I've looked all around trying to find where you show how to make this piece. I went to blogs but it just takes me back to the orig.msg. pg. Can you or somebody help guide me around?

    Thanks, Pat

    This technique would really lend itself beautifully to some Australian native plants such as the Hakea, Callistemon (bottlebrush) and the flowering gum.
